That’s right! Billy has been kind enough to share a helpful and informative quiz he’s made on the biological study of genetics, which looks at the genes, heredity and genetic variation of a person so that they might be able to catch a life-threatening illness early and begin treatment before it’s too late. Do you think you can pass Billy’s test? Answer the questions and find out!
